Commonly Asked Questions Of Dr. Marx About Your Children's Dental Care...


"Dr. Marx, how can I prevent tooth decay from nursing or a bottle?"

  Taking your baby off of the breast when he/she falls asleep can prevent baby tooth decay.  Hold your baby while bottle feeding.  Always take a bottle filled with milk or juice away from the sleeping child.

If your child requires a bottle at bedtime provide a bottle filled with water.  Instead of a bottle, try comforting your child with a pacifier or a favorite toy or blanket.

Check with your health care provider to make sure your child is getting the right amount of fluoride.  Brush your baby's teeth with a soft toothbrush daily.
